Filter/ HME

The use of heat and moisture exchanger (HME) filters and breathing system filters in the OR, the ICU, as well as other settings, helps to address concerns commonly associated with mechanical ventilation: proper humidification of inspired air and cross-infection. In order to support the clincian and to properly address these specific challenges, Dräger offers an extensive portfolio of high-performing HME filters and breathing system filters, including TwinStar® family filters.

TwinStar® Family Filters

The TwinStar breathing system filters/HMEs from Dräger combine all the advantages of the CareStar and the HumidStar, or the SafeStar and the HumidStar. They efficiently humidify and heat the inspired air of the ventilator-dependent patient. Additionally, with their high bacterial and viral filtration efficiency rates, their infection prevention performance is exceptional. A TwinStar filter offers microbiologic filtration to protect the patient from microorganisms that may be present in the inspired air, as well as safe-guarding the ventilator breathing system from airborne micro-organisms that the patient exhales. A highlight is the TwinStar HEPA breathing system filter, which contains a hydrophobic filter membrane of coated glass fiber. This membrane prevents the passage of contaminated fluids (e.g. blood, sputum, condensate) under normal pressure conditions of mechanical ventilation.
